You Get What You Pay For: Testing the Adage, Part 2

The Albany Business Review continues to release data from its annual "Schools Report." Today's topic is superintendent's salaries. The Hudson City School District ranks farther down on this list--56th out of 93. HCSD Superintendent Jack Howe gets $135,000 a year in annual salary and $24,002 in benefits. As Howe rather petulantly pointed out at a recent HCSD budget workshop, he is the lowest paid district superintendent in Columbia County.

  1. Oh boo hoo Mr. Howe -- the school district we've hired you to run is a monument to mediocrity at best and little more than a day care center at worst. You don't like the salary? Quit. Find another job -- there's likely hundreds of municipalities and school districts out there dying for someone whose managed a school district where the SAT take-rate is a barely above 20% and the average dollars spent per student is nearly $22k per year. You want a raise? Cut spending, boost performance, stop ignoring the taxpayers who subsidize you and please, please, please stop whining!
